Sorry to be a PW, but I actually have a 3T related question this time. Today the nurse at my RE's office said that if we want to try IUI first (as opposed to IVF), they are recommending starting with injects as opposed to oral meds. She also said that my FSH was 8.8, which is very close to the 9 cutoff that they use to determine if there is a problem. This was not explained to me at my last appointment with the Dr. when we went over the results of our testing when I was told that everything was fine with me, but whatever. The borderline FSH combined with the MFI diagnosis we already had lead them to want to do injects.
So I understand that a higher FSH means low ovarian reserve. What exactly does this mean for me at this point in our journey? Should I be worried about running out of eggs? This sounds dumb, but if I use injects to stimulate and produce more eggs, does that mean I'll just run out faster in the future?
My nurse at the RE's office isn't the greatest about explaining things and I think she's annoyed that I keep questioning the recommendations of the Dr. Is there anything else I should know at this point about this FSH information? Thanks!
